Last month, Major Taylor Project youth and volunteers gathered at Camp Long to ride bikes, explore their community and ask big questions about injustice, family and the structures that order our society. The Youth Action Retreat was a shining example of why we are stronger together.
The 2014 Youth Bike Summit was an unforgettable opportunity to connect with the diverse array of organizations and individuals across the country who are passionate about improving the lives of young people through bicycling. Next year the summit will be held right here in Seattle! Don't miss it.
Last Sunday, with enough rain and wind to consider building an ark, 18 members of the Major Taylor Project suited up, piled into our van and made their way down to Sprinker to compete in a Seattle Cyclocross event. All of the students did great, with smiling faces and mud flecked bodies they rode hard and brought pride to the Major Taylor name. One student, Mauricio Pestana, a senior at Global Connections High School, even managed to complete as many laps as the race winner--no small feat in such an exhausting competition.
